Bountiful Butterflies CTC#74

This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing pages 30-33 of the Occasions catalogue, the Shine On section. There are only a few pages, but those pages are saturated with inspiration. I turned to pages 32 & 33 where the project kits feature, At Onstage last November in Melbourne I received the stamp set Enjoy The Little Things as a gift for attending and I've made good use of the stamps on my cards since then.

Looking at the pictures of the Project Kits, I noticed butterflies featuring in both kits. Also decided I might as well use the Shine On paper  so I've ended up with mostly Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie.
This card at left, with rows of butterflies was styled on one from Enjoy The Little Things Kit. There is endless inspiration there in that particular kit.

The sentiment comes from Butterfly Basics and of course the butterflies were all punched  with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

This card with the silver die cut butterfly is similar to one in the You're So Lovely Project Kit. They are very neutral with a kraft or black label over the butterfly, star or gem, so I guess this kraft with silver 'v's' isn't too far from the mark. It is pretty and sparkly, but oh-so-hard to capture in a photograph!

The third card isn't strictly a CASE, it's a 'just because' card. Just because I had these supplies and stamps out, I was inspired to make another card, but that is the way it often goes when you begin CASE-ing. This time I grabbed a sentiment from Enjoy The Little Things 'Love This Life'. I certainly do!

You can buy all the supplies you need to make these projects on your own from my online shop, or would you rather come and do a class? Three cards for $20, everything supplied.
Since most of the crew are heading off to various onstage events that Stampin' Up! is holding this coming weekend, we have taken next Sunday off from CASE-ing The Catty. I am flying home on Saturday night, so I will have a little something to share with you, but unfortunately not the new Annual Catalogue yet - that's top secret for a while longer!!!

Now you'll want to hop on over to Julia Quinn unless you like to bloghop in reverse, when you'll be popping back to The Paper & Stamp Addict, Rebecca


Cheers, Rachel


  1. Great projects Rachel. Those kits are fabulous, aren't they? Love how you combined inspiration from the kits with the Shine On paper.

  2. What a lovely collection of cards and wonderful CASEing inspiration!! Your white butterfly card and Shine On paper is totally gorgeous - I LOVE the simplicity of this card.

  3. Isn't the Shine On DSP to die for!! Much nicer in real life. I love the ombre look of your butterfly card. And you really can't go past a silver glimmer butterfly, can you!
